well threatening is something and doing that is something else. but by this threats they just want to affect the oil prices. banning oil is the last and ultimate shot of Iran which they think it may cause political problems between Asia and EU.
Iran is doing it's job to separate countries from EU and US by it's oil card. and trying to exchange in east Asia currencies. if you believe that or not Iran is trying to harm west benefits politically and economically. it is a member of many economy groups in Asia and the chief of NAM who are after a new world order !!!
the more Iran succeeds to handle the sanctions the more EU will feel that first it is loosing the world trade and second it is loosing cheap Iran's gas and oil.
while Iran is after what they call it "economy of resistance" to reform and modify their economy, EU passes sanctions and after a period sees it is not effective enough so again another sanction and it is going on......
am I asleep or many of important countries in this world are just showing off for Israel, without gaining any sensible benefits

They should have done this when the unwarranted sanctions started. This is a good move on their part.



Yes a very good move on their part. Further destroy your own economy where the real suffering will be borne by your hapless masses.

Good move on their part, way to go. Brilliant.

That's pretty much happening their people are hungry and their currency is down what 70%?

This is a last ditch effort to ease the tough sanction. Do you really think Iran's economy could take halting oil exports? It would create some economic problems in the world but I think they and their people would be hit hardest. Oh wait if they really cared about their starving people they would have scrapped the nuclear program by now anyway.



Exactly, they care not for their own people. Some here are OK with that, when innocent kids suffer, its OK, it is leveled against the west. Right?

The conventional wisdom that the collapse of the Iranian rial will have disastrous consequences for the Islamic Republic has it wrong: On the contrary, it could be the best thing that has happened to the Iranian economy in years.


Propping up the rial may have fed national pride, and it certainly meant cheap consumer goods -- important factors for the populist Islamic Republic -- but it hurt domestic producers.


These advantages weren't cheap: The Iranian Central Bank concluded that, by 2007, the subsidies were costing Iran $88 billion a year, with Iran's energy costs at 10 percent or less of the international price. Using high oil revenues to subsidize energy was an expensive and inefficient way to help Iranians. A sounder policy would have been to invest in infrastructure, improve education, and make loans available for small businesses -- all policies followed by the Shah of Iran before the 1970s oil boom gave him grandiose ideas. As a result, Iran's economy in the 1960s grew as fast as China's has in the last decade.
As world oil prices rose after 2007, the burden of energy subsidies rose sharply. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, meanwhile, saw an opportunity to use these rising prices to his benefit. He made a shrewd political calculation: Rather than subsidizing gasoline and electricity used most heavily by the middle class, who detested him, he would raise energy prices to the global market price and use the money to send checks to the poor, who supported him.

so EU is not telling the truth. they are just saying that they are making Iran starve to death ! but they do not say that Iran has always 10% inflation and some years ago it boosted it up to 20% intentionally by reducing subsidies to reform it's own economy. and it's non_oil export has a growth. and it's stock exchange has experienced many booms during these months !
I do not know after 6 months what EU has to say for public opinion. may be they say that Iran has many lives and they are killing Iran's lives one by one
